Astholm Football Association launched [IC]

16-03-2009, 00:00
For the first time in Astholm's history, today the Astholm Football Association was officially launched by our interim Prime Minister, Michael Smith.

Currently it has Astholm's national team on the register, and it is the official governing body for this previously unregulated sport within the nation.

Any nation is welcome to sign up here, and will be accepted immediately.

Why would another nation have interest in joining your country's football association? (Asking seriously, not to be a jerk). We, and the other 80 or so World Cup nations have their own. Seems like this should be the other way around, and your football association joins the ones that play for the World Cup, starting with the next Baptism of Fire.

OOC: Just to second Newmanistan's point, a $RandomNation Football Association doesn't generally accept 'sign-ups' from other nations.

In the case of Atlantian Oceania (a region), there is the Atlantian Oceania Confederation of Association of Football (AOCAF), a governing body for football in the region. The national associations themselves, such as the Starblaydi Football Association (SFA), are a part of the AOCAF.

Unless we're misunderstanding quite what it is that other nations would be signing up for?

OOC:Sorry.... I'm new to the football thing! Advice is appreciated on joining football-related things!

The best thing you can do is sign up for the 46th World Cup and, as a debuting nation, is Baptism of Fire. You can do so, here ( Enjoy!
